Here is the completed pair of socks using the yarn I dyed with kool aid. I dyed 12 skeins, and am selling it at a lys here in town. The owner of the store wanted me to knit a sock to put on display with the yarn, but I loved the way these came out that I decided to keep them. I made the baby socks to put on display at the store...Aren't they cute?

Those are AWESOME! I love blue and orange together. What yarn and which flavors of Kool-Aid did you use, if you don't mind sharing?
Good call on making the baby socks for display...I wouldn't have parted with those, either!

Thanks! :blush:
Cate- the yarn is knitpicks natural, fingering weight. I used berry blue, lemon lime, orange, and pink lemonade. The other colors took over the pink lemonade, but there are still some tiny places of a very faint pink in the yarn. You should try dyeing some! It is so fun! :thumbsup:
